never ending.(osi)

'never ending'

it has all the names and no name
no clock ticks to no dimensions
merges happiness with sorrow
inside the senses but beyond

smaller than nano yet immense
how was it born when will it die
tied to belief still free of it
it is inert and kinetic

becomes the form and the formless
at once manifest and hidden
exists in life and lifelessness
an expression lighter than light

sought after yet seeking to be
at one with the infiniteness
constant in the momentary
unfathomable eternal..

{~ideas of the 'brahma' or the eternal~who was, is and always will be -from indian theology -[vedas,puranas,upanishads,the bhagwad gita]-the word-'an expression'-is brahma}

  1. Dear z.g.--

    Wonderful poem--
    You write beautifully!

    Thank you--

  2. This really gives us the sense of what neverending means.
    Thank you for sharing it.

  3. Beautiful poem,; it brings in a lot of images to my mind. Thanks.

  4. The depth this gives to reality is awesome.

  5. Reality is at once itself and the unreal. This is wonderful.

  6. This has the powerful contrasts of something like the verses from Ecclesiastes made into the song "Turn Turn Turn"- expressed through your wonderful expressive observations. Terrific!

  7. Contradictions are never ending. A beautiful thoughtful poem.

  8. I read this poem several times just trying to digest it. It made me think of falling into a black hole and being just beyond the event horizon.

  9. ..those who read the bhagwad gita would know that 'He' is the "black hole" and 'He' is the liberation from it-'He' is birth,life,death~'He' is the past,present and future~'He' is the 'brahma'-the reality and the beyond~'He' is everything..

  10. You've truly explored this prompt indepth Zoya. Very unique and evocative.

  11. "sought after, yet seeking to be!" wow, i really love this line...

  12. Your poem bounces around in my head as I try to wrap my arms around it all. But its not possible. Beautiful.

  13. Your poem captures the immensity of the infinite and eternal. It marries the opposites that make a completeness. Well done.

  14. Wow, the interface of yin and yang....
